The new state-of-the-art is a facility equipped to deal with emergencies of cancer patients
The oncology block at Nizam’s Institute of Medical Sciences (NIMS) which was completely renovated and expanded by Megha Engineering & Infrastructures Ltd (MEIL) under its corporate social responsibility, was inaugurated by Health Minister of Telangana Eatala Rajender.
MEIL constructed a medical oncology wing on the second floor of a building on NIMS premises, with 50 beds, including five ICU beds, with ventilator facility in 2018. Around ₹10 crore was spent on the works and infrastructure.
Around 30 new admissions are registered at the department. Most patients who opt for treatment there avail the services under Aarogyasri Health Scheme and Employee Health Scheme.
MEIL has also built rooms for doctors, faculty, staff, storage and processing. The new state-of-the-art is a facility equipped to deal with emergencies of cancer patients. The all-new Oncology wing in NIMS is comparable to any corporate hospital and ready to serve the patients.
MEIL renovated the old medical oncology ward and oncology outpatient wing located on the ground and first floors, respectively. Around 35 beds are available which would be used to provide daycare treatment such as chemotherapy to cancer patients. As part of daycare facilities, the patients would be provided with doctor consultation, counselling and post-treatment suggestions.
